Tip: If you give a Muncher tile custom graphics, it will still act like a coin when a silver P-switch is active, whether it looks like a coin or not. So make sure to use ExAnimation if there's a silver P-switch in the area.Not logged in.
Will Nintendo cracking down on rom sites affect SMWC and Rom Hacks?

I love this site to death. Id hate to see it go, so many people have created such amazing stuff, and I love hacks, and evrything else you can find here.

I saw Emuparadise and a few others got shut down.
It shouldn't, as we don't distribute illegal material. If Nintendo cracks down on the big ROM distributors, additional patches probably won't come to mind. If there's enough attention brought to the site, then we might have a problem.
Nah. As Lotica has said, this site does not contain illegal material. Also, I'm sure Nintendo knows of this site as SMWC has been online for a lot of time, so I don't really think "attention" is even a problem.
As long as there are no roms being hosted here then we should be good.
I think I'd be more worried about people who want to play hacks having trouble finding somewhere to download a ROM than about Nintendo shutting down this site.

How am I so creative? I think taking walks might have something to do with it.
Every single level of every single ROM hack I've ever made is easier than Ultra Necrozma.
Is it now impossible for new users to hack this game? #w{=(}
^
It may never be completely impossible, if this guy is not mistaken.

It's not really impossible. You can still buy the cartridge, buy a cartridge extractor (that takes the cartridge data and turns it into a rom), and use lunar ips to patch it. That's the thing. Rom sites are never gonna end if extractors still exist.

But will these ROMs ever come back? Can we still access them or are they completely removed from existence?
Nintendo may be cracking down their own IPs and disabling sites, but people (like me) probably have roms sitting in their cloud storage and maybe distributing it to others (not me). Emulation will most likely never fade from existence because Nintendo, as far as I know, is the only company worried about this stuff and once something gets distributed, it'll never stop. Not even SEGA or Sony care about this and yet they released stuff like Sonic 1 (iOS) and the upcoming Castlevania: Requiem.

If something has been uploaded to the internet, it cannot be taken down. Popular sites may go down but theres still billion other sites out there.

I don't think it is a problem.
Super Mario World is an extremely common game, so it's not like we're going to run out of either SMW or its ROMs anytime soon.
Trying to delete some things off the internet ends up working like a Hydra. Cut off one head and 3 take its place. It's a losing battle.
Just reinforcing what everyone said: SMWCentral does not host ROMs, so they can't target this site the way they targeted those others. You can argue that they were on thin ice for a long time.
